In honor of Endangered Species Day, the Pajarito Environmental Education Center (PEEC) is throwing a Pollinator Party, and the community is invited.
Join PEEC 10 a.m. to noon Saturday, May 22 at the Los Alamos Nature Center for this family-friendly celebration of local pollinators.
Participants will make their own pollinator wings, plant seeds for bees and butterflies, search for local pollinators on a scavenger hunt, and more.
This event is an in-person, family program that will take place outdoors at the nature center. Parents and guardians are required to stay with their children for this event.
To keep the group size small and allow for social distancing, registration is required and space is limited to 30 people, who will spread out outdoors. Admission is $10 per family. Register today for this fun event by visiting peecnature.org/events.
PEEC was founded in 2000 to serve the community of Los Alamos. It offers people of all ages a way to enrich their lives by strengthening their connections to our canyons, mesas, mountains and skies. PEEC operates the Los Alamos Nature Center at 2600 Canyon Road, holds regular programs and events and hosts a number of interest groups from birding to hiking to butterfly watching. The Los Alamos Nature Center is currently closed due to COVID-19, but there are many ways to learn about nature and interact with PEEC online. PEEC activities are open to everyone; however, members receive exclusive benefits such as discounts on programs and merchandise. Annual memberships start at $35.
